  • Simpson, R. W. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1969], 1969)
    Foreword: This report attempts to put together all of the optimal computer models concerned with scheduling and routing problems for passenger transportation systems. By placing them in one place, classifying them, and ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Liu, Elliott Wu-Hsun. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory ; 1979, 1979)
    Introduction: The growth of air travel in the United States during the last 40 years has been caused by a fusion of technology and economics. Aircraft design improvements, resulting-in higher speed and larger size, have ...
  • Reichard Megwinoff, Hčtor Nicolas ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1988, 1988)
    This thesis investigates the seasonality of demand in air transportation. It presents three methods for computing seasonal indices. One of these methods, the Periodic Average Method, is selected as the most appropriate for ...
  • Bohutinsky, Catherine H. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1990], 1990)
    Differential pricing of air transportation plays an important role in the current theories of airline seat inventory management. The ability to recognize those passengers willing to "sell up". or pay more for a seat on a ...
  • Mathaisel, Dennis F. X.; Pararas, John Demetrios.; Idris, Husni Rifat. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
    This paper describes the design and implementation of a real-time simulation of aircraft motion on the ground at airports. The aircraft Ground Motion Simulator (GMS) is designed to realistically simulate tower, ground, and ...
  • Taneja, Nawal K.; Simpson, R. W. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1969], 1969)
    Introduction: In considering ultra short haul, high density transportation systems, it may become feasible to use short term, real time decision making in operating the system. Here the dispatch of vehicles would be based ...
  • Sager, Dennis Wayne (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1973], 1973)
    Pilot performance in flying horizontally curved instrument approaches was analyzed by having nine test subjects fly curved approaches in a fixed-base simulator. Approaches were flown without an autopilot and without a ...
  • Jaw, Jang-Jei (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1984, 1984)
    In this thesis we develop two heuristic algorithms for large-scale multi-vehicle advance-request version of the dial-a-ride problem. This problem is concerned with developing a set of routes for a fleet of vehicles serving ...
  • Fujiwara, Tsuneo ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1988], 1988)
    A new algorithm is introduced for effectively solving the airline schedule transition problem, which involves efficiently re-routing aircraft in order to balance the number and the types of aircraft at each station at the ...
  • Levin, Amos ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1969], 1969)
    The purpose of this work is to formulate and develop practicable solution methods to some important fleet routing, scheduling and fleet composition problems. These problems arise in the operation of air transportation ...

  • Swedish, William J. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1972], 1972)
    During the month of January, a survey was conducted at Boston and Atlanta Airports to obtain input data for an interactive computer simulation of runway and taxiway traffic being developed by Lincoln Laboratory. Data was ...
  • Brenner, Melvin A. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1979, 1979)
    This report is the text of a seminar given by Mr. Brenner for the course "Air Transportation -- Economics, Management and Planning." The course was presented by MIT's Flight Transportation Laboratory in cooperation with ...
  • Taneja, Nawal K.; Kneafsey, James T.; Workshop on Air Transportation Demand and System Analysis (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1975, 1975)
    Introduction and summary: Forecasting air transportation demand has indeed become a complex and risky business in recent years, especially in view of unpredictable fuel prices, high inflation rates, a declining rate of ...
  • Francisco, Glen Leif (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1976], 1976)
    A forty-hour flight program was completed to study signal to noise ratio, lane counting and position accuracy using a low cost Omega navigation system in a general aviation aircraft. Specific test objectives were developed ...
  • Waldman, Gary L. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1993], 1993)
    This thesis explores the use of demand driven dispatch in the hub and spoke environment prevalent in the route networks of major airlines in the United States. Demand driven dispatch is an operational mode where aircraft ...
  • Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1968], 1968)
    Executive summary: A review is given of the material covered by the MIT/NASA Waterville Valley workshop which dealt with the institutional, socio-economic, operational, and technological problems associated with introducing ...
  • Clarke, Michael D. D.; Wickham, Richard Robert. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1995], 1995)
    Introduction: One of the most important strategic planning capabilities for an airline is the development of a good working understanding of the markets it serves in its network. These capabilities will include ...
  • Cohen, Dayl Arlene; Odoni, Amedeo R. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, [1985], 1985)
    Introduction: The allocation of slots at congested major commercial airports is one of the most difficult problems facing the aviation community today. The stakes involved are very large and the controversy generated by ...
  • Fisher, Michael R. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1987], 1987)
